Two New Search Engines...Alternatives to Google!

Whether you're an accountant or an engineer, information is important. Most of the information nowadays we find on the internet. Google is definitely the most popular means of searching, but new ones are popping up.

These look like a couple interesting alternatives to google: Mahalo and Hakia

We'll have to see how they develop. Mahalo is very 'human based'. It is actually moving forward having real people "searching, filtering out spam, and hand-crafting the best search results possible". If they can do it, it may be a way to get quality results in a short list.

Hakia doesn't have the 'human factor'. It is a search engine with a different (supposedly) algorithm for determining results. According to the site, "similar to the human brain's cognitive skills - rather than by the mere occurrence (or popularity) of search terms".

Let me know what kind of results you see.

First off I would like to say wonderful blog!
I had a quick question which I'd like to ask if you don't mind.
I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing.
I have had trouble clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there.
I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to
15 minutes tend to be wasted simply just trying to figure out
how to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Appreciate it!
